PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless What many of us wondered the moment Research In Motion announced the PlayBook's QNX-based operating system has now transpired: the Canadian smartphone and tablet company has announced BBX, their QNX-based operating system for both smartphones and tablets - in other words, the expansion of the PlayBook operating system into smartphones.

I never liked the term candybar. When you think of it, I think of a non-flat snickers shape and that would most likely be a featurephone.

If the BB/Treo platform are "candybar", slab needs to be renamed to popsicle.

It seems to me that if they were willing to lose some sales from their own market (whatever it is called, I've never been a blackberry user) and allow Amazon App Store, or ship with the Market, this platform could actually do well enough.

Edit: sorry for replying to the wrong thread, clearly I need more sleep these days.
